Somehow its mid-November and the studio has been decking the halls! We’ve already started custom orders for Christmas and we’re debuting our new holiday photo card collection! We’ve got plenty of letterpress cards available (that will be debuting this weekend at our Holiday Open House!), but we wanted to have a few designs available for those wanting to include a photograph in their holiday greetings.
Check out the designs and details here.

Awhile back Andy and Amanda of Seed Here had contacted me about putting together some letterpress business cards for them. Their logo, although a bit of a challenge on registration, was great for letterpress. We used 110# Lettra to get a nice impression and something a bit toothy in feel.
Beyond all the awesome events Seed Here works on, they have also been busy planning Creative Week 2013. If you’re in the Eastern Iowa area, be sure to check out all the events happening this week!
First and foremost, congratulations to Samantha and Michael who were just married this last weekend!
Sam and her beau-to-be were looking for invites earlier this year for their October nuptials. After a consultation, she forwarded on some inspiration images for their wedding celebration. She planned on wearing her mother’s wedding gown and incorporating some vintage elements to the decorations.
We incorporated a lace pattern on the invitations and used a flecked paper to invoke a bit of a vintage feel. The steel blue-gray partnered great with the natural colored paper. The couple also was hoping to subtly incorporated a monogram into their invites. A monogramed medallion was wrapped around the invitations, with a pop of red linen thread to pick up on their accent color.
Congrats again to Samantha and Michael!
Katherine and Andrew were welcoming a baby girl to their family this August. To celebrate some of Katie’s friends gathered for a garden party baby shower to honor her and daughter-to-be Savannah.
The names and flowers were hand-drawn in the Iron Leaf Press studio and paired with light gray and purple inks. RSVP notes were tied to each invite, with white ink on purple paper. White ink will not be completely white on darker colored stocks (unless you are using foil), but the effect here was to come close to the gray color used on the invitations.
Congrats to Andrew and Katie on their sweet little baby girl!
